Parathyroid function and calcium metabolism were studied in 44 patients under glucocorticoid therapy (steroid group) and in 25 control subjects. Nephrogenous cAMP and serum immunoreactive parathyroid hormone levels in the steroid group were significantly higher than those in control subjects (p less than 0.001). Nephrogenous cAMP in the steroid group correlated positively with prednisolone dosage (r = 0.424, p less than 0.01), and most patients who showed obvious elevations of nephrogenous cAMP… Expand
